Hi Idiots.

Few moments on this show are better than when we get to laugh at one of the show members in a state of embarrassment. We all make mistakes, it's part of being human. However, when a mistake happens due to being brazenly overconfident in your abilities and, much like Icarus, you come crashing down to Earth in spectacular fashion, it becomes something you never forget.

That's why this month, we're going to highlight some moments where our hubris (exaggerated pride or self-confidence) got the better of us. It just seems fitting do to it in July when you hear countless stories about people making poor choices with fireworks and ending up with a couple of missing fingers...or worse.

 

This week, we'll start with Free Beer, who spins a yarn about a rainy day in Chicago when a country boy encountered the unforgiving city.

 

When Free Beer was in college, he and some friends were in Chicago on a rainy night full of drinks and laughter and were ready to head back to his hotel. The only problem was, none of them knew how to get a taxi, except Free Beer apparently (he didn't but he'd seen enough movies to get the idea).

So he stepped right into the road...and subsequently fell into a deep, water-logged pothole, successfully embarrassing himself and ruining his pants while unsuccessfully hailing a taxi. Nicely done, bud.

 

Who's story of ill-fated ambition do you want to hear next? Let us know on Facebook.

The Show was on holiday break with each member up to something different. Our interests brought us to places all around the state (and country).

Could This Be The Future Home of Free Beer and Hot Wings?

If each show member pays a measly 50k, this nightclub could be the future home of Free Beer and Hot Wings.
